NEW RATES ARE GO
Workmen Illinois Grand Lodge
ment. MEMBER HAS CHOICE OF PLANS
will Pay in Same Amount
H. A. Johnston, C. W. Horton and J.
II. Heselin, delegates from the three
local lodges, and Kdwurd Hranden
burg, member of the committee on
legislation, returned last evening- from
Chicago, - where they attended the
conference of the state grand lodge
of the Ancient Order of United Work
men, at which the plans for readjust
ment of rates adopted by the supreme
lodge at its last annual meeting was
accepted. The new rate becomes ef
fective the first of the coming- year.
' The members of the order, under
the readjustment, have choice of two
plans. One is the classified or graded
plan and the other is the level plan.
Under the former the rates are fixed
for class periods of five years, the
members passing- from one class to
the next higher as they increase in
age. Afti- reaching- the class of 55
and beyond there is no further ad
vance in rates. The rate paid in this
class, hrwever, remains stationary to
the end of the life of the memlwr.
From 55 to 05 somewhat more than
the current cost is paid, this being
done to provide a reserve fund, in the
benefits of which the member shares
between 05 and !)2. For those preferring-
to pay a higher rate at the outset
and continue at the same figure
through to the end the level rate has
been arranged. A portion of this
amount is placed in the reserve fund
to meet the increased cost when the
member attains to old age.
Dozen AsMenamrnts a Year.
I'nder both plans the members are
to pay the same number of assess
ments, not exceeding 12 per year.
I'nder either plan the amount of
money collected from a member dur
ing life will be the same. At any time
until reaching- the age of 55 a member
may change from one plan to the
other. A number of provisions, such
as half-cash payment option and the
paid-up certificate options, have been
made for the benefit of the old mem
bers.. Under the readjustment plan it is
thought the jurisdiction of Illinois
will be able to pay all its death losses
next year with only 10 assessments.
The grand lodge also adopted an
amendment to t li constitution providing-
for the payment of the per
npit tux and- the local lodge dues
monthly inslead of quarterly, as here
tofore, and also for the annual elec
tion of local lodge officers instead of
semi-annually, and that the local lodge
recorders furnish annual reports to
the grand recorders instead of semi
annual reports, as has been done p
IS FINED FOR STEALING
FROM FRIEND IN HOSPITAL
.lames Clifford, who stole $10 from
a patient at the Moline city hospital,
pleaded g-uilty to a charge of embez
zlement in the county court today
and Judge I'armenler fined him $50
and sentenced him to one day's labor
on the county jail rock pile. Clifford
has been employed at New Shops. A
fellow workman was taken sick and
went to the city hospital for treat
ment. The latter was indebted to
Clifford in the sum of $2. Clifford vis
ited his friend at the hospital one day
last week and asked if he could not
settle the debt. He was handed a $10
bill. Clifford did not have sufficient
change, but said he would go to a
nearby store and break the bill. The
store visited by Clifford dealt princi
pally in jag-producing beverages, for
when he was next seen by his ac
quaintances at New Shops he bore
evidence of having- kept more than
one suds dealer busy. He told his
friends that he had handed the bune
to his fellow at. the hospital. He
would return to him and make the
amount good, but he had frittered the
10-spot away with the stein-swingers.
So he decided the safest move was to
leave town. He got as far as Cales-
burg when the Moline police caught
him. Clifford is spending- today fracturing-
rock at the county jail and his
friend is still sick at the hospital and
shy $10 of his hard-earned cash.
Patrick MeEvoy had business with
Judge I'armenter. Patrick was dock
eted for "obtaining- food with intent
to defraud." He insisted he was in
nocent of the charge, but was wise
enough to know that the easiest way
out of his plight was to plead guilty.
The judge, impressed with the fellow's
frankness, let him off with a tine of
$5. McEvoy was arrested for failure
to pay for a meal at a Moline chop
house. In explaining the circum
stances to the court, he said that an
hour before entering- the restaurant
he searched himself and found enough
funds to pay for the meal, and sup
poses the money was lost in the in
terim. limn Not Recovered.
E. II. Schooler, the man who was
hurt by jumping- from a train on the
Kock Island over a week ago and be
lieved at the time to have reeeived
fataMnjuries, is still in a critical con
dition. It has not been possible to
remove him to his home at Tarkio.
